  1. Are you kidding me? You have no place critiquing art.

    I liked the photos a lot more than the paintings. The paintings were too syrupy for my tastes.

  3. Kind of shows what a fake he was. Very disappointing but not at all surprising.

  4. You get to have your opinion. đŸ™‚ I think he’s amazing because of the stories he manages to tell with such expert artistry.

  5. What a gift to have been given advice from such an amazing artist! I can tell that you know how fortunate you are.

  6. Really It sounds good if you share something more from him.

  8. your personal opinion is retarded

  9. you’re the last person on Earth not using Adblock Plus

  10. You’r right, like photos more than his paintings

  11. Sorry but I’m of the personal opinion that Norman Rockwell is a HUUUUUGELY over-rated artist. He’s good, but not even close to as good as people seem to claim.

  12. Abe! I bet the world would love if you shared that correspondence online, if it’s not too personal! Sounds fascinating!!!

    Editing techniques?! These are paintings… there was no editing, just imagination and creation. He painted on canvas not over top of photographs…

  14. Addblock plus

  15. I tracked down the policeman and little boy in the soda fountain painting and had both autograph my copy. They couldn’t have been nicer to offer their autographs.

  16. editing techniques are very unusual, very nice touch of classic colors.

  17. If you click off to the right a bit, it goes away.

  18. His work manages to both define and undermine the stereotype of the period in which he worked. Probably one of the most difficult feats of artistic trickery out there. Love comparing the photos with the final paintings.

  19. Sure is hard to see the friggin paintings when there’s that big white advertisement in the CENTER of the SCREEN

  20. Norman Rockwell was a friend of mine. He used to give me some advice on which way I should go in my artwork. I still have his last postal card that he sent to me.

  21. Great Pictures. I love the ones where he adds a little story to them.
